  1. Thanks for picking this up!

  2. kinda disapoint since the MC isn’t a good villain character unlike Itachi, Lelouch or Yagami Light.
    thought MC Dungeon Defense is too psychopath thus make the story kinda boring after Volume 1 but both this Novel and Dungeon Defense isnt really bad but not really good either.

    • Need more of this kinda bored with CHarging Magic with Smile , House Magic and i Became a Living Cheat.
      as always thank you for translating this Novel.

    • Lelouch actually not a villain character , he is a good chara but why he act like a badass because its a contract with CC he must live with many lies, so every one didnt understand his final objective. Well he has talent to act as villain

      • i think thats why he called him a good Villian,he isnt one but chose to be one for his causes which are ultimately good natured

    • just read Dungeon Defense until the last volume and i tell u it will blow ur mind away.

    • MC of Dungeon Defense is splendid member of our society lol. As for Vermudol, i actually have hopes for him, waiting how it will turn out when he lose all fate in humanity.

  3. This actually seems to have some potential to be intriguing. Thanks for translating and I’m looking forward to more chapters!

  4. Really love the antihero protagonist. Keep up the good work!

  5. The TOC needs updating to catch up to the newest chapters.

  6. Please link raw LN..?

  7. Pls can someone really give me a novel where the MC is a villian like a real villain the kinds that hate bullsh**t. badass villian, villains are the best

  8. is this novel going to be translated till the end ? , cause total chapter of this novel more than 700+

  9. Still long wayyyy till the end of this novel

  10. Good novel, thank you for your hard work.

  11. If possible, can you add how many total chapters there are per volume? It would be nice to know how many chapters are left.

  12. Really excited for the future chapters. Hope they get released soon.

  13. ooooooof I just read the first chapter and this is gonna take me forever to get to where the new releases are

  14. Keep ongoing translator! I really like this LN but i can’t support you cuz’ i don’t have patreon or paypal?

  15. NOOOOOOO! Where’s volume 10!? I am so sad right now.

  16. Volume 10 was a shitshow. The story up to it was super interesting, lots of great characters and plenty of world-building and set up, and none of the payoff. It’s like Game of Thrones-level bad.

    You can clearly see that the story was axed before the writer was intending it, so a lot of the things the author wanted to finish were concluded all at the same time.

    If you like stories with satisfying relationships, don’t bother – you’ll be disappointed. Characters are great, interesting, and complex, but then there wasn’t any reason for them at all.

    Really, really liked the story, but was really, really offput by the ending.

    • Well ,that’s the problem with most Japanese authors.

      • I can’t speak for other Japanese authors, I can just look at this story and see how incomplete it was.

        For example, there is a main villain in this story, and the entirety of the series is focused on how they will defeat this villain. Only to find out, that not only was that person not the villain, but that there is another villain that is worse. However, the story ends before they even face that worse villain – like it was thrown in for no reason.

        The 10th novel threw out everything that the previous 9 novels had set up, from romances, to character growth, to even items that were supposedly important. All of them were rendered moot because of the final volume. It’s nearly criminal how abrupt the change was.

        I think the reason I’m so venomous about it is because I really, REALLY, enjoyed the story until volume 10, and then I felt betrayed for liking it in the first place.

  17. Is there translated original WN?

    This LN is still halfway from the original WN.

    • It’s not listed on the author’s page at Narou other than mention of it being for sale via Alpha Polis.
      Novel Updates has no mention of a WN version.
      If this ever was released as a WN, it’s been pulled from the web.
